Counseling is not one-size-fits-all.
While many people struggle, very few actually seek help. In fact, just one-third of those suffering from a mental health disorder get the help they need. Much of this is due to the social stigma that often comes with mental health. We understand the complexities of mental health and recognize that a disorder does not mean there is anything wrong with you. In fact, most people benefit from counseling whether it is to address symptoms of a disorder or to simply speak with someone outside of their inner circle.
Common Reasons for Individual Therapy
Did you know?
Individual counseling is a form of self-care.
Understanding the importance of self-care and knowing how to manage self-care are two different things. While individual counseling can be a valuable tool for when you are going through difficult times, it can also be beneficial in learning a self-development plan for the future.
In order to get the most out of therapy, it’s important to be paired with a therapist you feel comfortable with. Some prefer male therapists for certain issues, while others prefer female therapists. This is never a worry of ours as Great Lakes Psychology Group is home to hundreds of therapists with multiple men and women therapists in every specialty we treat.
